Fresh Sewing Day

Wow, April 1st!  This year is just flying by.  I don't know if any of you feel like this, but it seems like the older my kids get, the faster the time goes by.  It's a little scary!  

Looking back at the month, not only did it fly by, but it was not a very productive one for me.  I did accomplish a few things, though!

1.  I had my first giveaway!
2.  Cleaned out my sewing room.  (same post...more on this later!)
3.  Finished Ten Little Things Baby Quilt top.
4.  Finished Strawberry Shortcake Quilt top.
5.  My little helpers in my cleaning and organizing endeavors (they're just cute so I put them in there).
6.  Tried some paper-piecing (more on that soon).
7.  I received some super vintage fabric!  (more on this also coming soon!).

My plans for this month are:
1.  Get 5 quilt tops that are sitting in my cabinet sandwiched, quilted, and bound
2.  Hone my paper-piecing skills and try my hand at some New York Beauties!
3.  Figure out what I'm going to do with my super-vintage plaid fabric I was gifted (with your help, of course!)
4.  Write my {first} tutorial.
5.  Finish a significant portion of Swoon blocks.

Can I do it?  We'll see how to month unfolds!

So what did you accomplish last month?  And what do you have planned for this month?

I'm linking up to Fresh Sewing Day with Lily's Quilts.  Go see what everyone else has been up to in March!

Lily's Quilts


  1. Have fun with the foundation paper piecing! Don't be afraid to waste fabric though. I think that's the trick.

  2. Not productive for me....your list is good compared to Good job!!

  3. Such cute quilt that Ten Little Things!

  4. Can't wait to see what you accomplish this month! Oh, and did you know you are a "no reply" blogger? I've wanted to reply to your comments but I can't! Tragic, don't you think?

  5. So productive, Diane! Cleaning and organizing is a huge accomplishment! I need to do more of that, but there is always the debate: to clean up or sew? Sewing usually wins! Wishing you a happy April!

  6. Love the quilt tops and your organisation looks great :)

  7. That's not fair, I was going to say I was jealous of your candy stock .. and now it's all fabric, ok not that fabric isn't great too, but you just can't eat it.
    Some very nice things in your mosaic!

  8. I'm intrigued by the super vintage fabric!

    Is it wrong that I was distracted by the picture of the pudding on your stash boxes?

  9. Sounds like a fun and productive month! Great projects! I know what you mean about time flying faster and faster... seems there's never quite enough of it. :o)


Thank you for taking a moment to leave a'll make my day!
